(二)課程學習

I will say Introduction to psychology will be my favorite course in temple. First of all, I do not have any background related to psychology, so I was a little nervous and afraid that I cannot pass this course. However, this course is not as hard as I thought. I am not saying that this course is easy, it is hard tho, especially for the student like me, non-native English speaker. There are tons of terminology in psychology, what's more, the range of psychology is very broad. I remembered the most difficult chapter is Neuropsychology, I was so frustrated and felt desperate when I was learning this. I had to say that even if I learn this in Taiwan, I will fail it for sure. let alone in the us. when I was worried of it, it seemed the professor know what I or most of the students were concerned, she encouraged us and promised not goanna have a lot parts of this in the exam. When I went home, I grabbed the books immediately and studied so hard trying to understand all of it. I spent almost the whole week to study this chapter. But, to be honest, I do not think I got it. When I received my grades of midterm, I got an F which comes as little surprise. After this exam, I have learned a one thing, do not spend too much time on the things that is definitely too far from your capability. It is just wasting time. Instead, focusing on the field that it is inside the range of your ability and then making it perfect. Although the process of this course is not as easy as pie, I survived. In addition, the specialties of the requirements of this class is to write a journal per week and participate in SONA Research earning at least eight credits. Writing a journal per week helping me know myself more and reflect on myself. Participation in SONA Research is helping thousands of research coordinators and researchers around the world set up studies, recruit participants, and manage credits or paid participation. Those two assignments were very fresh to me because I never got a chance doing things like these in Tamkang university. These experiences have impressed and taught me so much, not only an overview of modern psychology, as well as a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you. I will recommend a website to anyone who is afraid of choosing the wrong course or professor when studying abroad. Just google 'rate my professors' and then you can get almost every information that you are questioning about. (440字)

(三)生活環境

Temple university is located in the Cecil B. Moore neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There are many different type of house that you can choose around the school. I chose to live in a house where is around the university, ten to fifteen minutes away on foot. I live with five girls who also study in temple, and each of us have our own room. A total of bathrooms in this house is two, so it would be a little inconvenient when the time to take a shower. However, the good thing is you won’t feel lonely because you got many roommates. Now, I am going to talk about this city, Philly. Philadelphia is the sixth-most popular city in the united states. It is a diverse city and its residents are almost fifty percent black people. Some people may consider that philly is dangerous, well, I cannot deny. But, I do want to be more specific on this point, if you stay out of danger, then you will be safe. I mean do not approach some dangerous place or get yourself into some dangerous situation, like going outside at 2 or 3 am, heading to the northeast area of philly by yourself or fooling around with some dangerous guys. So, just be careful and it will be fine. Besides, philly is located in a convenient area. It only takes about two hours to New York city by greyhound as well as about three hours to Washington D.C. what’s more, do not need to worry about there is no place to eat Chinese food for a year if you choose to study in philly because it has a great china town, just near the center city. You are able to taste quality bubble tea here too. Last but not least, be sure to try the most famous cheesesteak. (307字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:group assignment in class】

The first step is to challenge the possibility of self. In my junior year, I went alone to attend Temple University, the most iconic university in the north of Philadelphia. Temple is not only the most complete university in Philadelphia, but also includes students from all over the world. Although my heart was a little nervous, I still tried to overcome any of ddifficulties in life. Staying outside of the comfort zone in my hometown, I have meet students of different cultural backgrounds and learned about the true meaning of “diversity”. This is the first time that I left my home alone and traveled to a country that was tens of thousands of miles away. Not only did I gradually learn to independently solve difficult problems in life, but also learned how to communicate with strangers and reach consensus. Perhaps it is because of this enthusiasm for experiencing life. I chose to seize the opportunity to volunteer to serve as the group leader of the school's many group reports, learning how to manage the team and handle the issues. As team leaders, in addition to the need to supervise the progress of team members, it is also necessary to build bridges to listen to the opinions of each team member, to mediate them, and to distribute work equally to each classmate. I think that from these experiences of studying, the most important thing is to gradually realize the importance of "identification" and "identification." Only by achieving these two can we truly practice the possibility of self. (256字)

(五)大三出國建議

I would give some advice to those who want to choose temple in the junior year. First, if you do not have much budge, but you really want to study in the east of America, go choose IUP. The tuition of temple is very expensive. However, if you really want to attend temple or you want to live in the city, then choose to apply in lelp and get one or two courses per semester. It will save you almost half of tuition comparing to the full-time student. Second, do not be afraid of making mistake, ask whenever you have question. Try to experience some recreation that American really into it, like watching football game, NBA or MLB. Also, there are some club that aims to help international students to get used to here or improve language skill. Third, learn some cooking skill before you come here, eating outside is very expensive and gain weight easily. Forth, the weather here is dry. Therefore, do not forget to buy some moisturizer for protecting your skin. And do not worry too much about the cold weather in winter, I mean it is freaking cold especially in December and January. However, when the inclement weather comes, campus will close so you can stay at home being a warm coach potato. Just remember to buy some jackets during the thanksgiving or Christmas. You can save lots money and get some good stuff at the same time. Online shopping is very common and convenient in the United State, do not let it slip through your fingers.(261字)
